Prairie 62, Lakeside 12
PLUMMER — On a night Troy whipped a league foe, Prairie made short work of a non-league foe, setting up a Pirates-Trojans showdown for the Whitepine League title this Friday night, Oct. 25, at Troy.
Against Lakeside Oct. 18, Prairie’s balanced offense produced nearly 600 yards with Jake Bruner under center and a stable of four running backs breaking into the clear behind a stout offensive line. Chief among Prairie’s backs were Lucas Arnzen and Hunter McWilliams, who punched in the first, third, fourth, ninth and tenth PHS touchdowns on a lopsided night for the Pirates.
In between, Jake Rowland caught a couple of bombs from Bruner, who also ran for a 34-yard touchdown.
Rhett Schlader also scored twice for Prairie, which hasn’t stumbled since a 36-32 loss to Salmon River during the first week of the season.
Troy, a pre-season favorite in the 1A state title chase, is undefeated.
Up next, Prairie (6-1, 4-0) will visit Troy at 7 p.m. Friday.
CV 56, Lapwai 46
LAPWAI — Clearwater Valley and Lapwai battled to a 0-0 standstill during the first quarter last Friday night, Oct. 18, but defenses were nowhere to be seen in the second half of a game in which the offenses combined for 102 points.

Will Weaver caught two touchdowns from Hahots Shebala, and Trey Pfefferkorn capped CV’s big night with 45-yard run late in the contest.
Up next, Clearwater Valley (4-3, 1-3) will seek its second league win of the season with a visit to Potlatch on Friday night, Oct. 25.
